PLOT: Based on the popular video game where orcs and humans must join together to stop an even bigger threat.
I have a confession before I review: I never played the very popular game but as a movie it is EPIC. You can enjoy the movie if you never played the game for it is a sad popcorn movie. Orcs and humans must fight together against a wizard and the result is death and tragedy. It is played very seriously, not much humor at all and you actually care about the orcs than the people.
PLOT: Two middle class black men pretend to be gangstas to get back their cute little kitten.
Key and Peele had a very funny show on Comedy Central and they debut in this. If you like their type of comedy you will enjoy this. Believe it or not the action sequences are very good. They comedy is good too but it is like a 90 minute movie of their skits. The best thing really is the cute little kitten and (minor spoiler) the actor Keanu Reeves does the voice of the kitten in a dream sequence.
NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING
PLOT: The sequel to the successful Neighbors.
Mac and Kelly (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are having their second kid and they want a bigger home. Shelby (Chole Grace Moretz, Hit Girl, Carrie) is a lonely student who realizes there are too many rules at the sororities in her college so she makes her own sororities and the house she picks is next door to Mac and Kelly. It is crude, vulgar but it is also funny too. I really saw the movie because of Moretz. She seemed out of place for comedy because she is an action star.
THE CONJURING 2
PLOT: Paranormal married couple Ed and Lorraine Warren investigates a possessed child in England.
Based on a true story of a single mother and one of her daughters is possessed and the Warren couple will help them. There are a few jolts in the film but what is truly interesting is that there is faith and the paranormal pair belief in God. It is very rare in modern horror today. In a strange way this is why many religious movie fans made the movie a hit because of faith and family. Minor spoiler: The Creepy Nun is very scary and she (it?) may have a solo movie.
